George T. Chochos is an Assistant Director of Program Management, Executive Education and Program Manager for the Georgetown University Pivot Program. He is a prison and criminal justice reform advocate who has worked with organizations and legislators to pass a wide array of reforms, ranging from sentencing reform to expanding college-in-prison programs at both the state and federal level. 

George is a returning citizen who spent 11 ½ years in New York State Prisons, where he earned associate’s and bachelor’s degrees from Bard College through the Bard Prison Initiative as well as a master’s degree from New York Theological Seminary. After his release in 2011, he went on to attend Yale Divinity School, earning both a Master of Sacred Theology and a Master of Divinity degree as well as one of Yale’s top honors—the Walcott Calkins Prize. George has been a guest on the nationally televised Tavis Smiley Show and on NPR’s Where We Live radio broadcast. His story has been featured in The Politic, the Harvard Political Review, and in an award-winning article in the New Haven Register titled “From Jail to Yale.”
